, november 1, 2012. welcome to cbs "this morning." the aftermath of sandy remains overwhelming, the death toll soars and 5 million people remain without power. >> massive gas shortages are causing anger and panic but subway and trains begin to move slowly. >> and the presidential campaign gets busy again. we'll check with the newest polls with just five days to >> we begin this morning with today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >>> we are here for you. and we will not forget, we will follow up to make sure that you get all the help that you need until you rebuild. >> the northeast begins its long road to recovery. >> the death toll from sandy is now up to at least 74. >> 5 million customers are still waiting for the power to come on. >> debris from this storm is stacked on streets. >> when i left everything was intact. >> there are long lines for gas in hard hit areas. >> i got no gas. >> limited subway service will begin this morning. >> as much as the water has gone down we're still two levels worth of water until we get to tracks? >> absolutely. >> the election is only five d
media is doing. i'm reporting, not analyzing. but now i'll start analyzing. i listen to cbs radio every morning. it's usually pretty fair in its assessment of the news. but i knew when the economic data came out today cbs would report it this way. the labor department's october employment report, the last big reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a tenth of a point higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad
political weekend before the election on tuesday, we talk with john dickerson the political director of cbs news. >>hio is still the granddaddy of them all. governor romney's going there the most of all the battleground state, the same with the president. right now you would have to say that the president has the better electoral map, the polls in more battleground states are favouring him. but romney is doing better in north carolina and florida, and on the early vote he's doing well in those states, doing well in colorado. but the president is doing well in iowa an nevada with the early vote which tells us a little bit how this thing is starting to break. >> we close this evening with this qstio what is the impact of the digital revolution on books, writers and publishing. joining me ken auletta, tim o reilly, jonathan safran foer an jane frieman. >> i like the idea of ebooks how they can democratize books. ma what i am afraid of is on platforms that have distracks an are inherently fast makes it harder to make books books. >> it is so important to have historical perspective. you know wh
. breezy point, my god, that story, i was seeing michelle miller's report on cbs, her second one. it is just amazing what has happened there. we'll get to more on that in just a moment. we're also five days away from a presidential election. and there are some literally logistical issues with that. but bill karins was watching this morning, and you said something that really rang true. three days after a disaster is when the novelty wears off, when it really starts to hurt. bill. >> yeah. i've been going through these the last 15 years of my career, and this is the end of the glow. everyone's all together. it's a novelty. you're getting through it. if you did approval ratings of all the governors in the affected areas, they'd be sky high. this is it. from here, the anger and frustration begins to build from my experience going through these events. once you get to day three and four, all the food in your house is now gone. the gasoline crisis is going to continue. and your generator, if you have one, you can't even get gas for it. it's all of a sudden, it's cold out, too. you hav
three states. if they do it's a landslide. you talk about the gallup number, today the cbs/"new york times" numbers came out. three swing states, obama leads by one. in ohio, he leads by five. in virginia, he leads by two. this momentum by romney is all concocted and the press fell for it. dais i didn't call on you but you -- >> dana: i didn't call on you but you went anyway so i'll take the last word. one poll that came out yesterday that was interest, the national public radio teamed up resurgent republic to talk about the independent voters. if we go back eight months ago on the program to say what will matter in the election, independent voters. democrats vote for democrats. republicans vote for republicans. we have a group. gallop said 40% of the people identify independents now. there is an 8-point swing for independents in favor of romney. it happened right after the first debate if denver. 51-39%. they will have more detail out of the npr public tomorrow. it can tell you this. guess what? tomorrow in his column, karl rove in the "wall street journal" column, he will make pred
. is that the gasolineup will poll? the other -- gallup poll? the other is the abc, cbs poll excuse me. never in modern presidential history has any president, 50% or over lost the election. >> dana: but never has obama been at 50% up to now. >> bob: he was up a few weeks ago. >> kimberly: the last poll is within the margin of error. >> bob: you can pick it apart but more people think he is doing a good job than you. do >> dana: that's for sure. >> kimberly: talk about something serious. your vote and making it count. >> bob: that's serious. >> kimberly: what is important is your vote counts. it's our duty and responseability to report this. there has been problems with early voting in north carolina and ohio where people are going to cast their vote, they are selecting -- sorry to tell you, bob -- mitt romney and vote logs for president barack obama. they had to take the machine and re-calibrate it. problem happening. when you go to vote, make certain and check. imagine the people that went to vote there before they didn't catch it, you are in a rush and late for work. you leave thinking you voted for
leap. i want to run a number that jumped out at me from the cbs/"the new york times" poll. in this poll, they asked ohio, florida and virginia voters do you think things in your state, the economic conditions in your state are getting better, worse or staying the same? you look at florida, 37-25 better. virginia 39-19 better. ohio, you have the unemployment rate lower than the national average. 52% better, 17% worse. pretty big difference there. is this just a case where the economic conditions in a particular state are kind of overriding national factors? >> i think that's possible. certainly the case of the state economy stronger than elsewhere and the auto bailout is a tangible example to look at the president saying that's something that made the economic conditions where i live better and not true elsewhere in the country but i will note that broadly speaking romney's performing worse in states where the economy is doing well and like in iowa and the unemployment rate is lower than it is in ohio so i think it's not just as simple of whether the economy is doing well and other facto
romney when it comes to independent voters by 12 points and a cbs "new york times" poll that reflects the same numbers. a deficit for the president when it comes to independent voters. how does this work? michael barone is the senior political analyst and fox news contributor. i guess the theory is the republicans and democrats will be split and the independents will make the difference? and romney is winning with them? >> that's the theory. 2008 democratic party identifier outnumbered republicans 32 points. 2010 party identification was even. that's from exit poll data. if the parties are even in strength as when they are in 2004 and the 2010 off-year election then the independents are going to swing it because party identifier these days are strong partisans. you are getting 90-plus percentage of democrats for obama and 90% republicans voting for romney. weir we'll see something other than a 1% race in the presidential contest. megyn: if that's true why don't we see bigger numbers for mitt romney in states like ohio and iowa and these other critical states that may be required for h
schlessinger is the editor at large at cbs money watch.com. good to see you. thank you for joining us here to help us with this. you heard the candidates weigh in. how would you characterize today's reports, beyond what the rhetoric of what they say about it? >> first, let me say they're both sort of right. so each side has a point. but when you look at this report, i was so elated this morning, 171,000 is more jobs than we thought were going to be create the crea created. we thought there would be 125,000. you talked about the unemployment rate. let's discuss why it went up. it went up because we had a few more people, that re-entered the workforce, looking for jobs. that means they feel optimistic they can get a job. we have been talking about how people have been leaving the labor force, so we had some people come back into the labor force, that pushed the unemployment rate up by a tenth of a percent and another real positive, revisions to the previous two months totaled 84,000. we're averaging about 157,000 jobs a month this year. it is trending a little bit above last year. but the bo
% obama, 45% rrm. virginia, 49% obama, 47% rrm. that is from the cbs quinnipiac poll. let's start with you on this, congressman. the good news is that the president's lead is shrinking. we've seen it go down dramatically in those battleground states. the bad news, though, is that he is ahead. even if it's a squeaker. >> i think there are a couple of things to think about on this. number one, volunteers who are knocking on doors of those who have not voted yet come back with a very different message than what you're getting in the polls. for the president, the fact that there are still undecideds and the independents seem to be breaking toward mitt romney, that is not good news for him. it shows the momentum is definitely with mitt romney. people want change. they want action on day one. and they've been presented a very clear choice between the president and mitt romney. >> do you have any concern that in a state like yours and states further south they'll go for romney by these overwhelming margin margins, are you concerned that obama will win the popular vote, romney will win the elector
, abc,cbs, the national security media, foreign policy media has done a pretty good job of this. it's a question of is it going to affect the election in time or is it going to be something that sort of drips out more substantially after the election? >> gretchen: isn't that important, david? isn't it important for americans to know the answers before they vote for president of the united states? >> well, it is. but it's not realistic to know all the answers. >> gretchen: why? >> because there is a lot of players that have to be looked at, and frankly, as was mentioned, no administration is going to be anxious to try to be able to uncover all of this. >> gretchen: shouldn't that infuriate americans, that any administration wouldn't want to get answers out? >> i would be infuriated just by all of the statements made that have been patently untrue. jay carney said on september 14, we have no information that this is a planned attack. that's not true. susan rice said on september 16 that this was spontaneous. that was not true. and they knew it was not true at the time. so those are t
of it. >> jared, we have this recent "new york times," cbs poll in which it shows that 36% say the economy is getting better. is one of the democrats' biggest fierce that if governor romney wins he's inheriting an economy on the up swing and would be able to step in and start taking credit for it? >> well, probably one of the democrats' figurest feabiggest simply that romney wins. i have heard this argument. there's something to it. there are very much economic cycles embedded in our economy. and the next president is absolutely going to preside over an improved economy relative to the last four years. that said, i think the important thing there is to look at their different policies and how they might impact not just the economy but also the budget path. and there i think not just democrats but there are legitimate concerns about governor romney's $5 trillion tax cut that he's yet to specify anything like how he's going to pay for it. so economy aside you also have to worry about fiscal health, fiscal rectitude. that's a problem for republicans. >> hey, jj, real quickly, hurr
, it's the battle for the state and the electoral votes. these are brand new numbers out from cbs/new york times and quinnipiac. three of the most important battleground states, one is ohio. the president has a five-point advantage for ohio with 18 electoral votes. florida and virginia are also battleground states, basically tied up according to the new numbers from quinnipiac. >> we have heard mitt romney wants to expand the map to michigan, maybe pennsylvania. people saw that as a sign of maybe going on offense, but if the ohio number is really five points or three to five points as we have seen in a number of polls here, it could be that romney needs to find another way to pick up the electoral votes and not get ohio. >> every republican who has won the white house has won ohio. it's tradition, you need it, but there's an avenue for mitt romney to do it without ohio but it is tough. eventually he would have to bring up the score everywhere else in the battleground states or try to expand the map. >> we are also hearing a lot about fema and mitt romney's position on fema. yester
is not there. >> now, when you see the cbs "new york times" that's a good poll. the nbc "wall street journal," that's a good poll. the des moines register has their own. joe an seltser does that. there is some high quality, a lot of people calling live people but it's very, very little. and that's what plutes the averages and whether it's pollster.com or whether it's real clear politics or talking points memo or nate. nate as really bright guy. but i think you need to be a little more discriminating in terms of what polls you're plugging in because otherwise it's garbage in, garbage out. >> the last question before we go to your questions. given we are in a choose your own adventure environment tell me your instinct. it's a very close election. do you think that the public at large of the losing side, whoever that might be delared to be is going to be prepared to accept losing? >> no. >> no. certainly it's going to feel very different than it did in 2008 where mccain voters certainly wanted their guy to win but also you talk to a lot said boy on election night right you sort of felt a sense
